    I just bought a A8N5X motherboard and have a few questions about the
    A8N5X SATA Contoller and NVRAID:

    1) My old board was an Abit NF7-S with the Sil 3112A SATA RAID. On the
    NF7-S, I had two drives striped (RAID 0) that I'd like to move to the
    A8N5X. Are NV RAID and Sil RAID compatible? I.E Is it possible to
    move these drives directly over to the A8N5X using NV RAID set to RAID
    0 and go? Or will I need to reformat these drives?

    2) The two drives that I'm talking about above use the Abit (Silicon
    Image) Parrallel ATA to Serial ATA bridge/converter. Will these
    bridges/converters work with the A8N5X SATA controller?

    Thanks for all your help,

    Hal

    1) You can but try, but very unlikely!
    If it did, by some fluke work, dont rely on the data and reformat and start
    again
